The petition is calling for potholes on Jevington Road to be filled.

A statement on the ePetition page said, “We the undersigned petition the council to request that East Sussex County Council rebuild the damaged areas of roadway and repair all the potholes in C40 Jevington Road.

“This especially includes the following two stretches: (one) between Wannock and Filching Corner and (two) from the entrance of Butchers Bottom Car Park to the junction of Old Willingdon Road.

“The C40 Jevington Road is the only link road between Polegate/Willingdon and East Dean. This important road is well used and serves one of the largest parishes in the south east.

“We have been endlessly reporting damaged areas and potholes on this road to County Highways for the last few years.

“The latest set of repairs was undertaken on February 25 , 2021, however the standard of these works was insufficient as per previous occasions such that drivers reported no improvements with the existing pothole and damage issues remaining.”

The petition currently has 55 signatures and closes on March 22.
